I use Windows Xp Home. Recently I have experienced sudden reboots on my laptop - Dell Inspiron 8600, for no reason apparantly. After one such incidence I looked into Event Viewer and found this.
Event Type: Information
Event Source: Save Dump
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1001
Time: 10:41:55 PM
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0xf8998080, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804d9b68). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini051707-01.dmp.

Normally computer functions ok after reboot. But I am working on my thesis and cannot have computer dying out one day. So I would like to know whats causing this so that I can prevent it if possible. I looked into dump files but they are beyond my comprehension. Maybe one of you will be able to tell me whats causing this problem. I googled the exact same error but had no results. Please help. I have uploaded a few dump files, saved as text, otherwise I was unable to upload those, having invalid extension.
